Anthony Dixon is a Niner!

Not sure about this. He hasn't played much this year, maybe he'd be better at RG?

maybe.

Yep totally agree, He's the only Niner I don't follow on Twitter. He'll be gone next year

Q: What was your favorite drill of the offseason program and how did it improve your game?
A: I think it was the prowlers and squats we did. The prowlers are the sleds we put weights on to push on the turf field. This summer, working out with Justin Smith and the defensive line, I got up to like six plates on the sled. I really didn't know I had that in me. But we were out there one day – working hard, going at it – they challenged me and I did it. Working with "Big Justin," and you know how strong he is, they were making it look easy. But you know, I did what I did and I got it done. That was probably my most favorite exercise; it got me so much stronger after that. With the squats, I made improvements from last year, too. Those are things I can look back and say, "That's what made my season go as good as it was."

Q: Who jumped out to you the most during the offseason program?
A: The No. 1 guy that jumped out to me was Justin Smith. I gotta go with Justin because before we officially started (the offseason program), I was out here with him and he was talking to me about being a pro. I saw how he went about it and this dude, he comes in here every day and he just goes. He's a real blue-collar workhorse. So I'd say Justin. I learned so much from him this offseason as far as work ethic and what it takes to be a pro.

LOL seriously. What an outrageous statement. Posting a lot of s**t on twitter does not equal only caring about ho's. Dixon definitely does care about his jobl if you've watched him on the sidelines at any game this past season you would notice
Dixon will probably be in the best shape of his career but odds are against him. If he doesn't make it with us though I'd expect him to get picked up by another team (probably the Rams or Seahawks) and I think he will get more playing time and can be a decent player. Odds are just stacked against him here and I'm glad he is getting in better shape but like I have said 100 times I just wish after that rookie season he would have gotten quicker and faster and went from 225 to 215 or so and not up to 235. I don't know why they wanted him to get bigger (if it was the coaches choice or his) but I think it was the wrong direction. He showed a lot of promise his rookie year and I thought he would have been a steal in the 6th. Honestly, think he still can be a decent player with another team if he doesn't make it with us.
He went up in weight last year because he asked the coaches what else could he do to see the field more......he bulked up to get some fullback plays as well. But going into the season, no one knew that Bruce Miller would play like he did...especially coming in from a different position.

I think Dixon will do fine, here or another team. I can see Seattle looking at him as someone who could take some load off Marshawn Lynch's carries. They are both similar in size and are agile.

If Dixon is thinner then he was last year I cant believe we didn't cut him. Look at this pic of him at Aldon Smith's party last weekend.




Seriously if he looks like this now and people are saying he is thinner then before he really needs to get motivated because he wont make it on our roster if he is in that kind of shape 1 month before training camp. No matter his endurance, he would just be a big ball of fat running around. He needs some muscle.
if the team was that concerned about dixon's conditioning like you are, he would've got cut long ago....the trainers and coaches are always around him...in fact he has been in santa clara working out all offseason.
they should have stabbed him.
